iPhone 14 Pro Colors: Deciding on the Right Color

The iPhone 14 Pro models are available in a range of color options, with entirely new hues available alongside some popular classics. The ‌iPhone 14‌ and ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro families have different color choices, so if you have your heart set on a particular shade, you may not be able to get your preferred model in that color. For ‌iPhone 14‌ color options, check out our overview.

The ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro and ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro Max are available in four colors, two of which are different from those available with the iPhone 13 Pro models. The ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro and ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro Max's four available colors are:

  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Space Black
  • Deep Purple

Silver and Gold were available with last year's ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro models, but the ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro's Gold has been slightly tweaked to feature a slightly more beige back glass. It is worth noting that the ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro's Silver color only refers to the edges of the device and its rear is in fact white.

The ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro introduces two new color options: Space Black and Deep Purple. This is the first time that the a "Pro" iPhone model has been introduced with two all-new color options. Deep Purple effectively replaces the ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro's Sierra Blue, while Space Black appears to replace Graphite as a darker option.

While Apple usually introduces a striking polychrome color with its new high-end ‌‌iPhone‌‌ models, the change from Graphite to Space Black will be notable for enthusiasts who have clamored for a true black color option on the high-end models ever since the discontinuation of the ‌‌iPhone‌‌ 7 in Black and Jet Black. Space Black has been available on the Apple Watch for several years and is a decidedly darker color than Graphite, which was closer to Apple's Space Gray.

How to Decide on a Color

If you use your ‌iPhone‌ with a case, you may wish to consider which device color will best complement your case. You may prefer more neutral tones such as Silver or Space Black, and then use a more colorful case. Alternatively, you could choose a more striking device color like Deep Purple, and then use a more neutral case.

Silver and Space Black may age better over time as new devices are released since they are more neutral, almost monochrome shades. If you do not use a case at all, you may wish to take advantage of a more eye-catching color option such as Deep Purple.

If you want an ‌iPhone‌ in a brand new shade Space Black and Deep Purple will be the only options. Deep Purple, in particular, is likely to be the color that is most noticeably new and indicates that you have the latest-generation device.

Your color choice may also be dependent on how often you upgrade your ‌iPhone‌. If you upgrade every year, you may be more confident in buying a more noticeable new color, but if you keep your ‌iPhone‌ for many years, it may be wiser to consider a color that you have enjoyed previously if it is still available.

Customers with multiple Apple devices may also want to get an ‌iPhone‌ color that complements their other devices. For example, if you have a Purple iPad Air or iPad mini, it will be best complemented by the Deep Purple ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro. If you already have a Space Gray MacBook Pro, it will likely be best accompanied by a Space Black ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro. Likewise, if you have a Silver stainless steel Apple Watch, it will match the Silver ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro.
